FALL SCHOOL PICTURES FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 9
NEW THIS YEAR: THERE ARE NO PAPER ORDER FORMS - ALL ORDERING WILL BE DONE ONLINE
Hello Bronco Families Fall Picture Day is Friday September 9 through English Classes! BJH is using a new picture company and all ordering is completed online. There are no paper ordering forms going home this year. Families who order ahead will receive their picture packages delivered to school as usual and those who did not order packages will get an 'it's not too late' proof package. The advantage for ordering ahead is you don't have to pay shipping and the package prices are slightly discounted. Orders from the paper proof will just be mailed directly to the student's home address.
